Handmade and rustic have quintessential concepts in common, right? Rough edges, imperfect details, no identical pieces, the forgiving essence of natural materials, time-honored techniques. Also, it feels like bringing in some of the outdoors spirits. More and more, people are trying to avoid mass production or would like to support small local businesses, or simply prefer the aesthetic of craftsmanship unique products. Also, some people are ok with more human delivery times. That’s why we are growing this list with rustic kitchen products made in the USA by local artisans or by businesses that support the community and respect the environment. You’ll find unique bowls hand-carved from upcycled wood, hand-forged cast iron, ceramic mugs, etc.

This list is being consciously nurtured at a slow pace, with a lot of research and intention, just like everything we write on The Mood Guide.

Because farmhouse decor is trending, mass-produced rustic kitchen decor is flooding the shelves (and warehouses). However, some people care about the earthy essence of respecting nature as much as for the rustic aesthetic. Part of it concerns a self-paced transition towards thoughtful consumption. And I get it. There is a substantial beauty in honoring nature’s organic shapes and time. In times of unlimited greed, the respect for human-focused production and delivery times is a disrupting way of life.
